3. OUR STATUS
We may provide links on our site to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any guarantee that the products/services from Third Parties will be of satisfactory quality, fit for their intended purpose or as described. Any such guarantee is disclaimed completely. This does not affect your statutory rights with the third party seller.

5. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
5.1 After placing an order on our standard order form, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy Products. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
5.2 The Contract will relate only to those products/services whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
6. CONSUMER RIGHTS
6.1 You may cancel (within the acceptance/dispatch period specified in 5.1) a delivery at any time, but you must do so by 5pm, 2 business days before your delivery, at the latest. To cancel your order and obtain a full refund, you must email email@example.com
6.2 Effects of cancellation
If you cancel an order, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us) as this is a service/cost selected by you.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless both parties have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
Pursuant to regulation 28(1)(c) of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, contracts for the supply of goods are exempt from the right to withdrawal if those goods are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly. For the avoidance of doubt, boxes containing fresh ingredients and recipes to cook those ingredients are exempt from the right to withdraw.
